Pretty weird, I GUESS you could look a Dylan that way, but you could say that about plenty off artists, and still miss the point . Often you could say that about the people Dylan "plagiarized " , you listen to enough early music, and you can see where Woody Guthrie got stuff from, but to dismiss him as a plagiarist would be silly . Joni's a great artist, but great artists are not always great judges of other artists . Dylan is not as unique as we used to believe, but to see him as part of the continuum of American pop/roots music , doesn't make his best music analyses great . I fact , I think it makes him MORE interesting . I suspect the the future, Highway 61, and Blonde on Blonde will still be listened to, while her albums will be listen to by those wanting to investigate " singer/songwriters influenced by Dylan "...
